"This project has attracted a lot of attention in our community and brings a new concept to the floor - Universal Access to recordings. What does that mean? It means that if your hard drive is only 5GB, you use dial up, and you don't have a burner - another option can be available for you to enjoy (smaller files)."

Why can't you just trade for a perfectly good non-mp3 copy? People are just getting lazier and lazier and don't want to have to wait. The DMB community is a prime example of this... if a show isn't out the next day for download, people bitch.

I'm not a trader. I browse this archive, there's lots of music by artists that I've never heard of. I've downloaded a couple shows but having to wait a whole day to get a show means I don't listen to very much music.

Making the shows available in mp3 means I could browse the archive in realtime. Realtime versus a day. Millions versus thousands. The original full quality archives are still available. Seems like an easy choice to me.

In the big picture of Universal Access, this library is open to millions of non-traders- as well as the thousands of traders out there.

Even my elderly relatives know what an mp3 is by now, though they would never make it to learning how to drop a blank in a bubble mailer. ;)
